    You can download the android market called 1 mobile market from the internet. Its the best place to download apps that show up as non compatible from the play store. I've downloaded a lot of appa from 1 market and it's pretty useful and trust worthy. It always provides app updates in a timely manner.

    First use es file Explorer( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gs.android.pop) to pull the apk file from a device with whatsapp installed then sideload it to the tab s. Stay away from those third party app stores.

    hello guys, great news. i used to have the same problem with my Tab S 8.4, but just now I have downloaded the APK from Whatsapp website (as noticed in previous replies). I noticed the version changed from 2.11.318 (which the problem 'download latest version occurs') to 2.11.315, but I download it anyway. Surprise surprise, it worked! Now I can use Whatsapp in my Tab S. Seems like you must use old version instead of latest one. Hope this helps and ends the problem of ours.

    Hey guys, I have side loaded whatsapp in my galaxy tab s, and it is installed successfully. But I can't see the icon anywhere. However, it is showing as installed in the application manager. Any idea, what is the issue. Please help me guys.

    That's great news indeed Allif Hafeez! Glad you found the solution. Could you post a link to the APK 2.11.315? Appreciate it mate. :-)

    I have a question. After activating the WhatsApp in your Tab S, would it disable your other WhatsApp in your smartphone? Since this Tab S has no Sim slot, I presume you will need to input your existing phone number to get the verification code in order to complete the activation process in your Tab.

    I tried Viber (another popular messaging app) which is compatible with the Tab S. Upon successful activation, somehow the Viber in my smartphone wasn't working anymore. Hence, I'm wondering if the WhatsApp would have the same effect. Thanks.

    For the Samsung Galaxy Tab S with the Android version 4.4.2 (KitKat)
    When I am trying to Download, the messages shown "Your Device isn't compatible with this version"
    But the version date of Whats App is Sept. 30 2014.

    So How the Solution?

    Base from the above advice, I managed to extract the APK file & install successfully into my Tab S 8.4. Just as I suspected, upon activation using my smartphone number, my original WhatsApp in my smartphone no longer work.

    My version is 2.11.378.
